Brenda..i know Lake Lanier..i went sailboating when i was in Atlanta doing "Oklahoma"...Don't ask me where..somewhere on Peach street but then everything is Peach something or another there!
Brenda, really the ileal is the easiest to do so if Vandebilt is closer and thats what you want also consider Dr. Chang

Pat, you are my angel and I appreciate everyone so much. I will research the physicians you mentioned before making an appointment. Vanderbilt is closer for me, however I will go where ever I will be best taken care of.

After working for physicians for over thirty years I do understand they are not all the same.

FYI: I am helping with the July 17th Bladder Cancer Awareness Day event at Lake Lanier in Georgia. Wish you would be there.

Brenda..you're talking about the ileal conduit which is the easiest of the surgeries. The Indiana is the most complicated and i would go an entirely different route in choosing that surgeon as you want one who is female friendly and really knows what he's doing. I've really researched those guys. I think the best in the country is Dr. Inderbir Gill, Dr. Sia Daneshmand at USC/Norris...any of the Uro's at Indiana University where they invented the pouch...Birhle or Koch.....and theres a new doc at Vanderbilt Dr. Dmochovsky, Dr. Machele Donat at MSK in NYC.
Anyway its a very individual decision and we all have our reasons for wanting one over the other and we all adapt to whatever as long as you've got a Top Surgeon.

Do you have Dr. Schoenberg's nurses email address? I must have the wrong address because it will not This email address is being protected from spambots.

Brenda I see Dr. Schoenberg at Hopkins and he is great. I still have my bladder and had focal CIS in 04/08. Today was my 17th BCG treatment as so far the cancer has not returned.

Let me know if you need any further information
